Drawing an Orchestra

I made arrangements to sketch at a Wellington Chamber Orchestra rehearsal. They were preparing for an upcoming concert, and played Rachmaninoff
 — Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini and Tchaikovsky
 — Romeo and Juliet Overture–Fantasia. They were excellent and we all enjoyed listening and drawing. The music certainly added extra energy to my drawing. Some results are below:

Beautiful drawings with a Bic Biro From Cory


MrBlack took his usual approach, with varying line widths and a few patches of coloured pencil and watercolour.

Anne produced this great wide concertina page with drawing on top of pre-prepared washes and splashes of watercolour

And here's my effort.

I'm hoping to have some more events like this in the future, so if you have any ideas, please let me know. Andrew


  1. It was memorable, thanks for presenting this and organising the whole 'do', Andrew.

  2. Great to see the full range of styles.
